So far I have been doing good. I have got my introduction completed and I am finishing up my narrative part on my op-ed. I still need to write a counter argument to my piece because as of now it definitely lacks persuasion which is very crucial for op-eds. I am having a hard time figuring out how I can make a counter argument. Especially for my topic, convincing students to go to school for longer is not an easy thing. I want to be completely done by the 19th of May. I usually use that day to reread my piece a couple of times before handing it in. Personally I feel like I’m doing fine but I always have a mindset of “my work is horrible” so sometimes I have a hard time coming up with that conclusion on whether I’m doing good or bad. I would probably be interested in publishing my piece on NYT or Bloomberg if I do a good job.
